So I just looked at the graph for the last 45 days and the snotel sites and it's a bit difficult to tell where were at... Usually there are two crests, one involving low-mid elevation snow and the second and largest involving high elevation snow. about 2/3 of the snotel sites in the basin have no snow but a few have a lot: 15-20" of SWE left, that tells me that some, if not most of the high elevation snow is still up there. Overall the basin is about 130% of average currently.
The Smith is a difficult river to predict, a couple of cool days will equate to a drop, a big thunderstorm and it can peak but with that said the graph indicates that the river has crested, even while it's unseasonably hot and other rivers somewhat near are climbing past flood stage. That to me is good news, but now we need to see if this is the first or second crest... There was a small crest of around 900 cfs in early May. My guess is that was just the low elevation snow, this crest is mid and we are still yet to see the bigger crest, but only time will tell. It's definitely been a strange year.
The best news is its forecast to stay hot this week and then remain above average. That will help pump out water prior to your trips but plan on it being high and fishing being a secondary pursuit. It still fishes when it's dirty so don't despair, unless it's chocolate and pushing tree's down river you should be able to catch a few fish...
